Wine: Debauchery Carmenere
Producer: Vina Fray Leon S.A. for the Gerard Wine Co.
Region: Chile>Maipo Valley
Date tasted: 10/02/11
Place tasted: I think the sun was coming up; or was it going down? The clocks had all stopped and all I remember is there was a cat curled up in the corner of an otherwise empty room. I was sitting on the floor visiting with someone I had just met a moment ago, but had actually known for quite a long time. He shared many a story about the naked cowboys who roamed China in the late sixteen hundreds. Fascinating!
Serve with: Quinoa with black beans and cilantro. Can handle a fair amount of spice. Would be great with stilton or other strong aged cheeses, or maybe some nice dark posh chocolate.
Appearance: She enters your glass wearing a stunning crimson gown with a gentle ruby glow around the trim.
On the snoot: are chocolate candy corns in a soft leather pouch with a smudging of nag champa.
Taste: She introduces herself with a sexy whisky, yet smooth voice that holds your attention with a mouthful of ripe berries, black current, tobacco, and cracked pepper echoing in the timbre. Finishes with the big 'O'; strong and lasting with special effects of soft elegant tannins on oak, vanilla, and vintage leather.
Balance: HWP with slow thick sturdy legs that wrap around the inside of your happy glass.
Comments: You need to get some of this; and I need to get more. She's a perfect ten. I can't imagine anyone not loving this wine. If you are lucky enough to land on Orcas Island, you can pick it up at Country Corner Cellars. Just try to leave a bottle or two for me, ok?
